XSTIG: Cloud Computing Buzzing even for ComUnion ERP

The need for reliable programs and systems are a must as technology grows exponentially.  A buzz has been going on for Cloud Computing applications in the past years. It’s been a movement that deduces what lacks the on-premise software and servers of the nineties. 

Its 2001 and you might say it is what every industry does, outrun the latest trends and breathe fire to new ones; however, Cloud Computing is not just a fad like the others, it is here to stay. For one cloud computing is young and constantly evolving. If you ask a number of people regarding cloud computing you will get different answers because it’s been used differently. An overview description of it is that, cloud computing allows users to access a particular server using cyberspace as the platform.
What is cloud computing?

First, for those who would be confused about the terms, here is a quick definition. Cloud computing according to Wikipedia is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources for example: networks, servers, storage, applications, and services, that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction

 Using devices such as computers, smart phones, etc. the cloud applications are managed in a cloud server and data is stored remotely. What favors cloud computing and give its popularity are its benefits for small and medium, mostly limited-budget-organizations. IT managers find it easier to deploy and is much more cost and time efficient. For ones distance would not be a problem when it comes to communicating and collaborating with the rest of an organization and its subsidiaries because data input, change and management can be done on the fly. It can also be expanded and upgraded on demand making it less costly than its on-the-premise predecessor that needs regular maintenance. Subsequently, when ComUnionERP Team, created their very own Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), they followed their on-premise version with a cloud computing alternative. The on-premise version of ComUnionERP acknowledges local businesses best practices giving each organization an exclusive system. ComUnion was a success, hence the further development of an all processing and storage in a cloud server. 2009 however marks the last progress for the ComUnion Web ERP system as they decided to shift its focus to reselling instead of producing their own business applications. Now the group welcomes fine companies fitted to handle and continue ComUnion Web ERP.
